How to install a new font family on Windows 10

On Windows 10, you’ve been able to install or uninstall fonts since the beginning through the Control Panel, but the experience hasn’t been able to showcase new font capabilities, including variable fonts and color fonts.

Starting with version 1803 (April 2018 Update), Windows 10 brings a new experience to the Settings app to manage fonts. In the new Fonts settings, you can not only see the fonts currently installed, but you can also easily uninstall fonts you want, there are more details and tools, and fonts are also available through the Microsoft Store.

In this guide, you’ll learn the easy steps to add and remove font styles using the Settings app on Windows 10.

How to install new fonts using Settings on Windows 10

To install a new font family using the Microsoft Store, do the following:

  1. Open Settings.

  2. Click on Personalization.

  3. Click on Fonts.

  4. Click the Get more fonts in the Store link.

Once you’ve completed the steps, the new font family will appear in the Fonts page. If you can’t find it, you can use the search box in the page.

These instructions will help you to add a new font family from the Microsoft Store which is a trusted source. Although, it’s not recommended to install anything in Windows 10 from another source, if you get the .ttf or .otf files to install a new font, just like before, you can simply right-click the file and click Install.

How to uninstall fonts using Settings on Windows 10

If you no longer want a font style, you can use the following steps to remove it:

  1. Open Settings.

  2. Click on Personalization.

  3. Click on Fonts.

  4. Click on the font you don’t want anymore.

  6. Click the Uninstall button to confirm.

After completing the steps, the font you uninstalled will no longer be available on your computer.

If you don’t see these new settings, it’s likely because you’re not running the Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803), which is expected to roll out in spring of 2018.
